Neal Boors paintings are filled with multi-volume colors, weighty textures, and sensual forms which suggest a response to situations triggered by our shared experiences. These very accessible paintings are essentially abstract landscapes wherein all extra visual elements, both literary and symbolic, have been eliminated to encourage reflection. To that end, he deliberately uses vague thus expansive sensual forms that allow one to drift by and through the composition. In each work accumulated ambitious forms continue to evolve as the additive and subtractive painting process makes its journey toward resolution.
The artist received a Masters degree in art from San Jose State University and became a professor of art at San Jose State University and Boise State University. Later he became a Master teacher of art at Stanford University. Numerous exhibitions include Franz Masereel Centrum in Kasterlee, Belgium as well as the Triton Museum, Santa Clara, Los Gatos Art Museum, San Jose Museum of Art, and the Santa Cruz Museum of Art.
